often hear president obama talking about lincoln, mitt romney talking about ronald reagan, and now "newsweek" is out with a list of the ten best presidents since 1900. sir harold evans who is author of the fabulous, "the american century" has a tribute. it's a ploesh to have you here. >> thank you, madam. >> you gaekted together ten distinguished historians. what was the criteria? >> the criteria was what kind of active presidents were they. it's very interesting. the historians, all -- every single one of them chose franklin roosevelt as number one. >> why? >> best president since theodore roosevelt in the beginning of the century. if you ask them why he did that, he was active and effective, those two things. and he had a sense of america's ideal of itself. so they took those criteria. they didn't know what the others were doing. they all voted and it's interesting the top three -- >> so it wasn't a big sitting around the table and discussing this. >> no, no. it was all in isolation. they locked them in a room with an ice pack and 5,000 volumes of their own works and said, come u
and burn our flag and attempt if ronald reagan was president? >> announcer: meet tom, a proud dad whose online friends all "like" the photos he's posting. oscar likes tom's photos, but he loves the access to tom's personal information. oscar's an identity thief who used tom's personal info to buy new teeth and a new car, and stuck tom with the $57,000 bill. [tires squeal] now meet carl who works from the coffee shop and uses the free wi-fi. marie works from there too. she's an identity thief who used a small device to grab his wi-fi signal, then stole enough personal information to hijack and drain his bank accounts. every year, millions of americans learn all it may take to devastate your life is a little personal information in the wrong hands. this is identity theft and no one helps stop it better than lifelock. lifelock offers the most comprehensive identity theft protection, period services may take 30 days to alert you. lifelock's 24/7 proactive protection would have alerted tom as soon as they noticed an attack within their network, and lifelock's bank account takeover alerts d h
, ronald reagan's. on the other hand, you had the debt limit talks in 2011 where president obama in the middle of talks never, until this day, has gotten specific. we don't know if he offered to raise the medicare retirement age. we don't know how much he said he would cut medicare and enact entitlement reform. so he did the opposite. he went into a serious negotiation not as a candidate but as the president and never got specific. it's one of the reasons we never got a big debt limit deal. so i think mitt romney actually is following the reagan pattern. the question is who when it comes to real negotiation with congress will follow through and get it done. i think mitt romney would be stronger at that. the president, if he could have done it, would have done it. >> secretary reich, you said -- >> let me -- with due respect, with due respect to mr. fleischer, the fact is when ronald reagan was running we didn't have the kind of budget deficit we have right now. it's very -- >> that's not the point. >> let me just finish, i may, finish this thought -- you cann as a presidential ca
. that is what happened to ronald reagan in 1984 debate with walter mondale. it overran the persona of ronald reagan. next debate he was much more relaxed. roger ails did a great job preparing him and did much better job. same thing with governor romney. he has to know how to answer the questions but he has to be relaxed and rely on himself. one of the things i tell candidates it's very important that they have the good political judgment to make decisions and think on their feet rather than rely on script. >> give me one thing that you think we ought to look for out of mitt romney and one thing out of obama in this debate coming up on wednesday. >>> i think one of the -- apart from the economy, i do think one thing we should be looking for is to see if the president is willing to talk about his record on the economy and defend it. the american people ought to be making a judgment whether or not the president can defend that record. he ought to be looking for governor romney how well he press the case against the president. it's been his failure to lead on the economy that has led us into the
ronald reagan in that debate? >> right. >> do you recall that? >> that's right. >> all this talk about ronald reagan and whether obama had sort of invoked the name of ronald reagan because so many democrats didn't like him or whatever. well senator obama then took the punches, explained what he said about reagan and took it back to her, keeping the anger under control, finding balance and pushing back hard just not too hard. >> it was interesting too as well you could ask the most dry mundane question, dealing with the economy. they would go back to the talking points in the attacks. it was clear they were trying to score points. fireworks. a "game change"er if you will. i want you to see here's mitt romney in a scenario that played out in the debates, the primaries with rick perry in las vegas. >> i'm speaking. i'm speaking. >> you get 30 seconds. this is the way the rules work here. in get 60 seconds and then you get 30 donds respond. anderson -- >> you say -- you knew. >> would you please wait? are you just going keep talking? let me finish what i have to say. >> all right. there's
by last year's earthquake. the 9.6 million contract was awarded to the same company that built the ronald reagan building. scaffolding is expected to go up within the next two months. >>> it is 4:38 now. we're in for another warm day. a few peeks of sun, too. howard has the weather first in two minutes and talks about possible thunderstorms as well. >>> we all know about the game angry birds. prepare yourself for bad piggies. more on that at 4:42. >> women who snore during pregnancy are at risk for a potentially deadly condition later in life. the findings of a new study at 4:51. >> we're back in two minutes with your weather first. you're watching 9news now. >>> welcome back. 4:40 on this thursday morning. muggy out there. we've got the humidity up. north of town we're watching a few showers and thunderstorms early. we'll see those past by and probably see a few more late this afternoon into the evening hours. may hold off through the evening rush with some luck. highs will be on the warm side up in the low 80s here in d.c. 70s north. mid-80s south. monika? >>> in silver spring north of
and so his policies are not proposals that are open to negotiations. for instance, ronald reagan had policies that were always open to negotiations, with tip o'neil, and they worked things out. this is not the way this president works, it's either his way or nothing happens. stuart: all right, i would say you've harshly characterized the president "the amateur". how would you characterize mitt romney so far the way his campaign is going and presents himself to the public. >> well, sadly, i don't think he's exactly been the pro. i don't think he's been the master. i think he's shown a lot of amateurism as well, running for president. stuart: political amateurism, not policy. >> oh, no, the policies, i think are solid, as the rock of gibralter. i think we see him stumbling, doing things that are not in his own political interests. he seems to have a bit of a tin ear. i think he's gotten better, but he still has a long way to go. stuart: can i ask how the book is going? sold a lot, hasn't it. >> the book is going fantastically, 20 weeks, number two on the new york times best seller list
you. first there, are ebbs and flows. jimmy carter was far ahead in his election against ronald reagan, where he was beaten decessively. i think polls would show them statistically tied, tough fights in certain swing states. what governor romney is trying to do is point out the fundamental differences between his faithan an in the private sector and the president's view we should invest in companies and have more government intrusion on the economy, and we've had, frankly, a failed recovery, and then on foreign policy, whether we're going to lead from behind and have the type of turmoil in the middle east or mitt romney's position of peaceable strength and leadership can leave america better off. >> let me explain this both to you. president clinton is about to reveal what he to say about it. a really big story in new york. nothing to do with the cgi, u.n., or anything else. all about the nfl match. president obama weighed in on twitter. nfl fans on both sides hope the nf lockout will end soon. >> it was a close call. i think the rules state if you have dual possession in the end zone,
to bomb you. george w. bush said all options are on the table. >> i remember they did that with ronald reagan. he was pretty successful. reagan said he was going to take military action and pointed missiles and made it clear. >> so reagan said all options are on the table plenty of times. >> this was a long time ago when bush was dealing with iran. iran was five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten years away from becoming nuclear. iran now could be a month away, two months away, two years away. under president obama iran has by three times increased the uranium and made it much more enriched than it was originally. that's a massive change in a short period of time. of course obama has a bad history of begging to negotiate. wrote a letter to the ayatollah six months ago wanting to talk to him. >> what would mitt romney do differently? mitt romney talking to george stephanopoulos said he had the same red line as president obama. >> we don't know what president obama's red line is since he won't share it with us. won't share it with prime minister netanyahu. he doesn't want to have a red line.
spending cuts and tax increases. ronald reagan agreed to tax increases when it hit 4%. george w. bush did when it was 3% of gdp. but today's republican party is organized around the proposition that no matter the circumstances, there must never be a tax increase of any kind. the simpson-bowles proposal calls for $1 for every $3 of spending cut bus every republican presidential candidate during the primaries including romney pledge thad he or she would not accept $10 of spending cuts if that meant $1 of tax increases. so romney could present a serious economic plan with numbers that add up and then he would face a revolt within his own party. so his solution has been to be utterly vague about how to deal with the actually deficit. when pressed for details, he said, the devil's in the details. he's right. were he to get specific he would be committing ideological blasphemy. instead he talks about freedom and capitalism. the same pattern emerges on immigration. he says he wanted to solve the immigration issue permanently but he can't actually propose anything practical because that would tal
! >>> there was a passing, i do want to note today, a man whose voice touched generations, a voice that ronald reagan called a national treasure. this is my go-to christmas album. andy williams. andy williams who hasn't hummed along to his silky rendition of this tune. ♪ moon river wider ♪ ♪ i'm crossing you in style ♪ ♪ some day >> oh. andy williams, he started his career singing with his brothers at the age of 8. and entertained for almost 75 years. 18 gold, three platinum albums, a self-titled variety show and christmas specials that played on tvs across america, a popular theater in branson, missouri. he died in his home in branson last night after a year long battle with bladder cancer. andy williams was 84 years old. >>> now to the cell phone radiation debate. guess what, it's back. the question is, is there too much radiation going into our brains? could it cause cancer? here is the deal. it has been 15 years since the fcc set the radiation exposure limit for cell phone use. now the u.s. government accountability office wants it updated now. dr. gupta, brain surgeon here, joining me. i have
the ronald reagan building. our andrea mccarren at today's announcement joins us live with details. lots of people waiting for this, andrea. >> reporter: that's right. you have to enjoy it now without the scaffolding because the repair work here could take as long as 18 months. web cameras will be installed so we can all keep track of the progress. >> it is beautiful. i'm glad it didn't fall down. >> reporter: barbara and jerry haynes snapped photos of a scaffolding free washington monument while they city could. >> we knew there was -- still could. >> we knew there was damage from the earthquake. >> i said wow. i have to say this registered 7.4 on my richter scale. >> reporter: now two men who each visited the washington monument as children are now leading a team that will repair it. >> thrilled to death. we're very thrilled. in many ways it's one of those signature projects as an engineer, as a construction man, it's something you wait your life for. >> reporter: scaffolding will go up within the next two months with the same design used for the monument restoration in 2000. >> i'
the criticism a little bit, you know, back when ronald reagan was president, he did not attend every general debate at the end of september at the u.n. he did not come up here all eight times as president. i think subsequent presidents have all come up, but i think reagan hit right. you don't have to come up here every year. >> greta: so if president obama hadn't spoken this year, and that would be -- that would be -- there's a historic reference for it, and that would be okay in your mind, or is this a different time? >> no. i think it goes against obama's ideology. he had to come and give the speech. he had to bend a knee to the rest of the world at the podium, which he did in his speech. but he's trying to minimize the contact, because he knows it's not popular domestically in the united states. however good it is for his image internationally. so he did the absolute minimum and then he got out of town. >> greta: after the prime minister netanyahu gives his speech and goes back to israel, map out what you think will happen in the next couple weeks, if anything. >> well, i don't know. i do
. despite president carter's efforts. instead, they were freed as soon as ronald reagan was inaugurated. setting off democratic suspicion never proven that reagan emissaries back channeled with ryan to delay freeing the hostages and denied the troubled carter campaign a huge pre-election boost. >> it fed into the whole dynamic of the 1980 race in the sense that jimmy carter was a stumbling, ineffective president. >> fast forward to 1992, president jhw bush was on the ropes against bill clinton over a sluggish economy when ronald laying an's defense secretary was -- bad news that bush, who served as reagan's vice president did not need. >>> in 2004, a classic october surprise. osama bin laden released a video on october 29th, just four days before election day in a razor-thin race between president bush and john kerry. >>> it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believed helped president bush. >> the term october surprise has become a seismic event. most centered around foreign policy, others have been around the economy, like in 2008. when the eco
. >> if you say i'm going to bomb you, you look like ronald reagan and you release the hostages. >> you'll find a lot of quotes saying all options are on the table. >> you can also find a lot of quotes from ronald reagan, i will use military power and never hear one from barack obama nor the words, islamist extremist terrorist whose carried out attack on our ambassador and killed him. instead, a bump in the road. a bump in the road? >> thank you so much, sir. >> thanks for joining us. >>> the rest of the top stories. two american soldier, killed in an attack by a suicide bomber in afghanistan. a third american soldier injured there. the attack happened in the a district just south of afghanistan's capital of kabul. a spokesman said the suicide bomber detonated himself during a military eration. >>> a fraternity at the university of knoxville is a suspended over alcohol enemas. 12 students cited for underage drinks, another disorderly conduct. one student rushed to the hospital with alcohol poisons, blood alcohol level five times the legal limit. he is out of the hospital reportedly back
thinking, hey, ronald reagan said something kind of wacky, that'll destroy his presidency, it didn't. my advice to the romney campaign, we should write blogposts and say, hey, can you believe obama said that? the romney campaign needs to criticize president obama's policies and say what they would do instead. jon: so you're saying that they need to be more forward looking instead of looking in the rearview mirror every week? >> yes. i think if you look at the polls in detail, if you look at the inside, some of the questions, people aren't happy with the way the country is, but they're not similarly willing to say -- simply willing to say things are so horrible that whoever replaces him is going to be better. and people still blame president bush for the meltdown, so romney has a task, more subtle, complicated and challenging task, really, than i think his own campaign thought. they thought don't make mistakes, be acceptable, we'll win. it's not proving to be that simple which means that the camr challenge of making a positive change for their ayen da. i think they can do it, but they nee
opportunity. martha: not to pat your settle on the back. >> it was ronald reagan. i lost minnesota to beckel. he won everything. martha: we'll have you guys to talk about that. there must be good stories in that. >> there are many good story. >> i'm sure there. when you look at the campaign i'm curious what you think. after the ryan pick as i said, very nice move in the polls for mitt romney. that was a real strengthening moment. what do you see as the major factor that brought us to the numbers we're at right now in this race? >> i think romney's had a struggle the last couple weeks. obviously the 47% thing last week was not good. i think he is getting back in his groove. there is sufficient time to get this thing back on track. it's a narrow place where he has to go to win but i think it is all there. he just has to execute. he now has maximum television everywhere. they have a very strong ground game as does the obama team. it is really identifying voters and get them out and they're voting already. key thing, 30, 40% of the voters will vote before election day. you have to make sure ever
is a more gifted speaker than oh, ronald reagan? paul steinhauser joins me now. you have the memo. read me more, we want to know. >> interesting not just the campaign doing this, the candidates lowering expectations. take a listen to mitt romney himself over the campaign trail the last couple of days. >> he's president of the united states. he's a very effective speaker. >> he's a very eloquent speaker. so, i'm sure, in the debates as last time with senator mccain, he'll be very eloquent. >> reporter: what they're trying to do is lowering the bar, expectations, so if mitt romney does better in this debates next wednesday in denver. >> caller: they will say it's a great victory for him. this is what campaigns do. i don't know if americans really care but definitely what the campaigns do. >> curious they're saying mitt romney has absolutely no experience. he participate in 20 debates during the primaries. don't those count? >> yeah. bingo. that's what the obama campaign is doing because they're doing the same thing, trying to lower the bar as well. a lot of their surrogates have been saying
